Diabetes is a very serious condition that affects many people in Singapore. Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood sugar (glucose) is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough—or any—insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.

Sometimes eating a healthy diet and exercising alone may not be sufficient when it comes to managing diabetes. Nutritional support is integral in treating this condition. Diabetes being a nutritionally wasting disease places importance on nutritional support. High levels of glucose act like a diuretic which causes a huge loss of nutrients via urine. People suffering from Type 2 diabetes are more likely to be lacking in important water-soluble vitamins and minerals. A failure to replace those lost nutrients could lead to further complications of nutritional deficiencies.

Also, diabetes supplements are essential as they can help healthy body to manage normal insulin levels and keep blood sugar at healthy levels.

Vitadeals imports a number of diabetes supplements to Singapore which may help support healthy blood sugar levels in normal individuals. Research is currently being done on the claims that the following vitamins and minerals may play such a role:

B-Complex Vitamins

Vitamins B6 and B12 support nerve health which is highly important in addressing diabetic neuropathy. Biotin, a B-complex vitamin is essential for metabolism and growth.

Vitamin C

This important vitamin lowers levels of sorbitol which is the sugar that collects and damages cells in our eyes, kidneys and nerves.

Vitamin D

This fat-soluble vitamin helps to fight infections such as diabetic ulcers and periodontal disease by boosting the production of cathelicidins, ultimately destroying certain strains of bacteria and virus.

Vitamin E

Helps to improve glucose control and protects blood vessels and nerves from free radical damage.

Magnesium

Believed to decrease insulin resistance, one of the key factors causing difficulty in controlling blood sugar levels .

Vanadium

Vanadium can improve sensitivity to insulin in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Chromium

Aids the function of an insulin in our body, making it work more efficiently. This trace mineral helps move glucose and other nutrients into the cells.

If you have diabetes, remember that treatment is a lifelong commitment of blood sugar monitoring, healthy eating, regular exercise and, sometimes, diabetes medications or insulin therapy. Supplements may only be beneficial if taken with this in mind.
